This past weekend, approximately 3.2 million women and men marched to show their support for women’s rights. Marches happened all across the globe just a day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The women’s march was much more peaceful than the protests during Friday’s inauguration. This video shows the massive crowds that gathered.
The message of the participants this weekend was clear: this is just the beginning. Women’s groups plan to keep the momentum going post march. This weekend’s activities were an important cultural moment in history that showed people can be united and empowered. But there is still a long road ahead. Being a feminist today has become somewhat “trendy”, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. Personally, I think it’s helping to spread the feelings and beliefs that many people share. Women should have the right to choose what’s appropriate for their bodies, have access to the health care systems, be treated equal to men, and to show unity with individuals around the world who are also frustrated. I hope that this march creates a movement that lasts longer than a four-year presidential term.
To end on a high note here is Madonna dropping a causal three f-bombs on live t.v. during the Women’s March in Washington D.C.
Cheers to all the nasty women who marched! xo
